I'm just sitting here waiting with 32 minutes to go, so I thought I'd start the thread.

oh my goodness. Neat semi-merge idea Smile First I thought 'now I have a team to really root for. Hatch and Jerri, with Alicia and Rupert opposing? What else does Survivor need?'. Well, crap. Stupid Colby.

Ethan's expression was priceless when Hatch caught a bigger fish. oh gosh...wonderful.

Boston Rob won for his team, but he also showed himself to be an even bigger threat. Not always the best move.

I need to watch it again, but first The Apprentice. Also, next week looks exciting Smile

"I've been bamboozled!"

Heh.

What did people think of Hatch's stunt during the immunity challenge?
Did everyone get the The next scene may be upsetting... blah blah... Viewer Discretion advised warning prior to the challenge?
Am I the only one who cringed more at Ethan whacking his head (ouch!) and thought perhaps *that* was the supposed upsetting part?

I may have to rewatch. I think I missed something when I blinked.

My kids and I were a little confused as to why he got naked in the middle of a non-swimming challenge, but then I guess we saw why. It was stupid, disappointing, and ill thought-out, in my opinion, but not really shocking. I semi-glossed over it with my kids. Not really behavior I want them thinking is ok, but I don't want to make it into an issue, either.

I don't know if we got the next scene warning or not. I was getting the kids to brush their teeth, etc., during commercials so I didn't catch all the oh-it's-back-on moments. It was rated tv14 I noticed. Nice timing. We've got the kids ready to sit and watch a show they look forward to, and then, when it's starting, you tell us it's tv14. Good thing it wasn't too bad this time. What should we do next time? Rush them out of the room in a big drama? I'm pretty sure cutting that little bit out wouldn't have hurt the show any. I'm glad they showed Jeff scolding him at least. Still, it's on at 8, it's supposed to be a clean show. Come on now, CBS. I don't think your ratings need any boosts by that kind of foolishness.

And we thought Colby was a goner last night. The twists and turns of Survivor All Stars - this game is ON!

Maybe Jeff is the one in trouble for not disqualifying Richard or something for rubbing on Sue.

I'm still not sure what I really thought of the episode. There were some good points, for sure.

Personally, I couldn't have been any happier to see the Saboga tribe dissolved-- they were becoming very pathetic. I've lost some respect for Rupert in this show as compared to the last one.

I like Ethan, I'm sad everyone is gunning for him, lol. Razz

I'm also sad that Richard was kicked out...y'know at the beginning he annoyed the heck outta me, but dangit, he was so darn entertaining after a couple of weeks. lol, I loved the look on his face when Ethan came in with fish... "hmm...competition..." Wink Course now that tribe has prolly gotten a false hope that Ethan can at least take care of their fishing needs, even though they don't realize that was the first time he ever caught anything.

I'm honestly not sure who I woulda voted for-- Colby or Richard. They were BOTH power players technically, if I'm gonna use Kathy's words as for why she was voting off Richard.

All I know is that the most interesting thing about the ep was the preview for next week. Wink I really wanna see why Sue is yelling at Jeff...that is going to be very interesting...nobody is supposed to yell at Jeff! He's so perty. lol Big Grin

I'm thinking that Rich being more tolerable and even kinda funny in his interviews this ep and this being the ep he gets voted off on is not so much a coincidence as clever editing. If so, it worked. I found him far less offensive this week (except for the uncalled for Immunity challenge nakedness).

I agree with TwinXenas. It looks like Sue is freaking out about either Rich not being disqualified for las week's behavior or about Jeff making light of it. Either way, yikes!

And Heitie, I know what you mean about the kids watching. My friend and her husband are REALLY careful about their kid's tv viewing but they watch it with their 2 young girls and have never really had a problem. I guess cause the innuendos go over the children's heads and generally not a ton else has been overtly inappropriate (the kids have never questioned or noticed Richard's pixeled groin- who knows why not). The girls fell asleep this week so they didn't see Rich's stunt but last week they wanted to know what Amazon Rob meant when he said "Rob and Amber are gonna do it". They wanted to know what "it" was. Hehe. Some fast thinking on their mom's part explained that Rob and Amber may kiss. Yeah, right. Wink
In any case, the parents now tape the show and rewatch with the kids the next day so that they can fast forward through stuff.

I was spoiled for this episode Frown I was trying to see something at The Late Show website and it said Richard was a guest next week at the top of the page. It was one of those moments where you don't stop reading til it's far too late and then you realize what happened. The perils of not living in America.

Anyway, an interesting episode. I liked the dissolving of the tribe. There was no warning shown here before the 'incidident' though.

I can't wait til the next episode Smile

i've never appreciated the nakedness, but it's obvious that he was just doing it to psyche people out. or so says i. the "incident" was totally innapropriate, and i do think that jeff should have disqualified him for it. is there not a rule against sexual harassment in the game? you can't get much more harrassed than that.

it was fun watching rob bounding across the planks like a little monkey, but i gotta say, i did cringe A LOT when ethan went down. the poor kid, he's too pretty to die!

i now have a favourite team - woohoo! Big Grin. mogo mogo all the way baby: lex, ethan and shii ann, in that order. Wink

i was pretty much hoping that colby would go instead of richard (i was starting to like the bastard dag nabbit!) but at least it wasn't colby gone, with ethan and lex left hanging. so call it an upside.

i'm still having no emotions for chapera (?), even with rupert. i'm starting to not like him anymore. meh, he was only ever fourth in my top four anyway. still, it would have been cool to have everyone on the same team. maybe next time.

oh yeah, i do have one emotion towards chapera: DIE ALICIA, DIE! also that yelling lady doesn't seem like much fun. why did she pee on the raft?? very strange.

go mogo mogo! wooh! Big Grin
*happy dance*

Best I can tell, Tom had a plan to christen the raft with alcohol. As brought up a few eps ago, Sue doesn't drink alcohol at all (not sure why but it was specifically pointed out at camp). Sue decided to "christen" the raft herself before Tom got a chance to.
At least that is how it was edited to make it appear.

yeah, i did hear that, but what kind of civilised human being does something like that? it's just really immature and gross, if you ask me. tom got his "christening" anyway, so she acheived nothing, except that now everyone knows how pety she is.

I think when you've been in that environment for a period of time propriety changes shape a lot. Like, they're all peeing and pooping around each other anyway (more or less), they all stink, they've got little to do so talk of bodily functions probably comes up now and then. So by our indoor-plumbing standards it's gross, but to them it's probably less so. I guess Wink

she could have got off the raft - that's all i'm saying. i know she was making a point but i still think it was really lame and immature. another reason to not like chapera.
